Review: Taming the Whirlwind by L.M. Heidle

Publication Date: December 3, 2015

Series: Standalone

Rating: 4 Stars 

Official Blurb: 
Liz is slowly accomplishing her goals: 

1. Get out of her small town- CHECK 
2. Graduate College- CHECK 
3. Move to New York- CHECK 
4. Get a job- working on it 
5. Find drama- WAIT! NO! 

Finding drama was NOT on her to-do list, but apparently life didn’t get the memo, because it threw her one heck of a curveball. What curveball you ask? It’s not a what, but a who and that who would be Mr. Kade Ian Parker. The tattooed, short-tempered, sexier-than-should-be-allowed businessman has turned her world more than upside down. He obliterated it. Her life has turned into something that even a soap opera writer couldn’t come up with. 

Kade never wanted to find love. He saw how his family crumbled after his mom left; there was no way he was going to be crushed by another woman. No one had come close to making him want more, until her. No matter how hard he fought his attraction and oh did he try. Hell, he basically pushed her into another man’s arms, nothing changed. 

He. Still. Wanted. Her.

Review: This was a pretty good debut novel by L.M. The writing flowed well and the story line was very easy to follow. At times, I felt like the story dragged in places and was a little rushed in other places. The books name does it justice because it definitely took me on a whirlwind a few times.

Liz is settling in to her life in New York with her life long friend and now roommate. She just wants to get a job without any drama but meeting Kade has opened up her life to more drama than she could have every imagined, and Kade isn’t the only drama Liz has encountered.

My view on Kade is both annoying and loving. At times, he irritated me to the point I wanted her not to be with him, but he also had some redeeming qualities throughout the story that helped me like him again. 

Liz and Kade both go back and forth throughout the book. One minute, Kade wants her but then fights his feelings for her, but he also doesn’t want anyone else to have her. Some people, from both of their pasts, pop in throughout the book, which I believed helped Kade see Liz for the wonderful person she was. Overall, this is a fun read and I look forward to more from L.M. in the future.
